For foodies craving good old chicken salad — with so much more, now have the place to go.
Chicken Salad Chick, the nation’s only Southern-inspired, fast-casual chicken salad restaurant concept, announced on Wednesday it will be expanding in Florida with its newest restaurant in Coral Springs.
At Chicken Salad Chick, diners will enjoy tasty food with distinctive flavors made fresh daily. From the variety of chicken salads to pimento cheese, broccoli and grape side salads, and so much more, they have something to satisfy any craving.
Kicking off a string of development in the state, the Coral Springs restaurant marks the first Florida opening this year. Additional locations in St. Petersburg, Ocala, Gainesville, and Wellington are slated to open over several months.
The Coral Springs restaurant is owned and operated by first-time Chicken Salad Chick franchise owners Claibourne and Nicholas Rogers of The Rogers Group, LLC.
Claibourne was first introduced to the brand in 2015 while serving as an account director at Chicken Salad Chick’s public relations agency, Fish Consulting. From assisting with grand opening strategies to boosting consumer awareness of the brand’s offerings, she was an integral part of the Chicken Salad Chick team. When presented with the opportunity to open the brand’s first restaurant in South Florida, the Rogers couldn’t resist.
“When I started working with Chicken Salad Chick, I immediately fell in love with the founder’s story, the corporate team, and the brand’s values. The only downside was that there wasn’t a location near me,” said Claibourne.
Any time she would visit the Auburn headquarters for meetings, she would fill her carry-on bag with as much chicken salad as she could fit and share with her coworkers, family, and friends.
“They quickly became hooked, and I knew then that Chicken Salad Chick would be the perfect addition to Coral Springs’ growing restaurant scene,” said Claibourne.
The husband-and-wife-team is thrilled to be opening in Coral Springs and has plans to open an additional location in Boca Raton in the next couple of years.
Located at 2908 North University Drive at The Walk of Coral Springs, Chicken Salad Chick will make its South Florida debut on January 27 and will celebrate by offering free chicken salad for a year to the first 100 guests.
Those awarded will be properly distanced and will receive a designated return time upon arrival to spread out the number of guests at the restaurant throughout the day.
Chicken Salad Chick is closely following Florida’s state and local guidelines for COVID-19 procedures and will open the Coral Springs restaurant with social distancing measures in place. All employees will be wearing masks and gloves and practicing proper handwashing and food safety protocol, and all guests will be required to wear masks until seated for dining.
During grand opening week, guests will experience the Southern hospitality that Chicken Salad Chick is known for, with giveaways and specials that include:
Wednesday, January 27 – Free Chicken Salad for a Year – The first 100 guests will receive one large Quick Chick of chicken salad per month for an entire year, with one of those lucky guests randomly selected to win one large Quick Chick of chicken salad per week.* Guests can arrive starting at 7 am for grand opening day only.
Thursday, January 28 – The first 100 guests to purchase a Chick Special will receive a free Chick Special redeemable on the next visit.
Friday, January 29 – The first 100 guests to purchase a Chick Trio will receive a free Chick tumbler.

Guests should arrive between 7-10 am to get checked in while maintaining social distancing. The first 100 guests will be assigned a number and designated return time between 10:00-11:15 am. Upon return, guests will make a purchase of “The Chick” or anything of greater value and scan the code ‘1st 100 Spot’ on the CravingCredits app to officially secure your spot.
